We saw many of the local San Diego sites while visiting the city. However, the best part of the trip was the Ghost Tour and our guide, Archie! The kids absolutely will not stop telling friends and family how cool the experience was!

The ghost bus tour is awesome. Be sure to try and get Rosalinda as your guide, she does a amazing job!! The tour is well worth it and there's plenty to do in old town before and after the tour. I'm local and still learned so much. Thank you!

Loved this tour and would easily do it again! Dante was our guide and I not only learned some fascinating history, but was entertained the whole time PLUS there was a haunted house to go inside! We had a blast, the time flew by, and I absolutely recommend this tour!

A fun couple of hours
Oct 2021
This is a fun way to fill the end of an evening or to start one. We have been to San Diego many many times and are always looking for new things to do. It being October, we decided to try the Ghost Tour. Our tour guide was Al and he was very fun on our 9pm tour. This tour doesn't take itself too seriously and for us that was part of the charm. They also tell you up front that they will give you plenty of historical information with some spooky elements added "for theatrical value". We made several stops and were allowed inside a few locations. We learned things about San Diego that we had not been aware of before. Al was very informative, funny and entertaining. Would def recommend if you are into history with a little spooky fun mixed in.

Great entertainment
It was a great tour. Driver was extremely careful and a great driver. We enjoyed hearing the stories. Our tour guide knew a lot about the history. I wish it wasn’t as theatrical but had more scientific experience.

We are working on a day time history tour for early 2022 that will be perhaps a better experience for you, less theatrical.

This was our first ghost tour and it was absolutely awesome!! By far the best company for ghost tours! We saw other companies giving tours and they didn't look like they were having a very good time. Rosalinda was amazing..,it was informative, funny, and just scary enough! Thank you for the great memories!!

What a great Haunted tour that we learned so much from!
Jun 2021
My daughter and friend and I went on the Haunted San Diego Ghost Tour last night and it was excellent. I appreciate that before the tour I was sent an email and a text with detailed information about where to meet in Old Town and what to expect.
Our tour guide greeted us right away and was very friendly and nice. The Ghost Coach pulled up and our guide started out tour. Our group walked to the historic Whaley House in Old Town and we learned the history of the home and who lived there.
The Ghost Coach (bus) then picked us up and drove us to Sherman Heights. The bus was comfortable and cutely decorated inside. The guide shared stories and photos with the guest on the drive down. We stopped off to see the Villa Montezuma a Queen Anne style mansion. This magnificent mansion was built in 1887 for the renowned musical composer Jesse Shepard by Spiritualist. This home is reported as haunted and is known for the owners conducting séances inside of it.
Our next stop was to the legendary Horton Grand Hotel in San Diego's Gaslamp District and we got to go inside this beautiful hotel. This hotel was built in 1887 and is a National historic landmark that is thought to be haunted.
After seeing inside of the beautiful Hotel we walked across the street to see the William Heath Davis House that is a historical house from 1850. Because of Covid pandemic closures, we could not go inside of the house but our guide had a key to the courtyard and she opened it up to tour us around the park area and told us the history of this house.
The last stop of the Ghost tour was to the Cemetery of El Campo Santo located in the Old Town San Diego Historic Park which is a burial ground where many of San Diego's deceased were laid to rest for all eternity. The cemetery was built in 1849 and was used until 1880. We walked around the cemetery and heard some stories about it being haunted by the ghost of Yankee Jim Robinson who was hanged on the property of the Whaley House before it was constructed. Witnesses have recounted seeing other apparitions as well.

We all enjoyed the tour and the humor and storytelling. I have lived in San Diego for a really long time and have visited all of these spots many times over the years, but I still really enjoyed learning new history and information about each from our educated guide.

I highly recommend this tour!!
